Ah, but the water going through that seacock is conductive and therefore a stray current path may very well be provided through that less than desirable "connection". Better to have a good clean solid wired connection than not? There may also be a current path on the inside of the hull because of moisture on the inside of the hull. Not saying I'm for or against bonding but there are pro's and con's to both sides.
